Chambers in doubt for Origin III

Aap
Saturday, July 05, 2014

GOLD COAST - Queensland say it's business as usual but NSW enforcer Greg Bird believes the assault complaint against Will Chambers must have an effect on the Maroons' State of Origin preparations.

Chambers' build-up to his Origin debut in Wednesday's series finale in Brisbane is under a cloud after a patron at a Brisbane nightclub accused the 26-year-old of pushing him to the ground in a scuffle.

Tristan Furniss, 24, has lodged a formal complaint with police over the alleged incident, which happened at approximately 3am on Wednesday at the Down Under Bar in Brisbane's CBD.

No charges have been laid as police continue their investigations. The Queensland Rugby League and the NRL's integrity unit are also investigating what happened.

Coach Mal Meninga also find himself under the microscope, with calls increasing for him to drop Chambers following his comments in relation to then NSW halfback Mitchell Pearce before Origin I.

Pearce was overlooked by Blues coach Laurie Daley after being arrested during a night out in Sydney's Kings Cross, prompting Meninga to criticise the Sydney Roosters star and claim Queensland had a superior culture to the Blues.
